Quatuor Eclisses

Since 2012, the Quatuor Éclisses is gaining ground on the French musicalstage. With complicity, originality and subtlety, the four guitarists are giving anew breath in the classical guitar sphere. They propose a new outlook ontheir instrument by creating ambitious and innovative transcriptions fromthe piano or orchestra repertoire. Winner of the 1st European Chamber Musiccompetition of the FNAPEC in 2013, they thus followed ensembles such as theWanderer trio or the Ysaÿe Quartet.They met at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, whichis the best superior music school in France. Since then, they are friends. Andthey are carrying out a brilliant international career that led them to theUnited States, Switzerland, Indonesia, Jordania, Algeria. In France, they playedin Paris in the sumptuous Théâtre du Châtelet, the legendary Hôtel Nationaldes Invalides, the International Festival of Guitars.
